2009 crafty summary and 2010 plans

Well I guess that is 2009 over. In 2009, I've not managed as much knitting and stitching progress as I thought I would. I am, however, quite pleased with what I've achieved.

Knitting wise, I finished 29 things.

2009 Finishes

At the end of the year, I was left with 14 knitting WIPs which is really quite a lot. On a slightly better note, only 3 of those WIPs were started before the start of 2009. Quite a few of the WIPs are nearly done so hopefully 2010 will see some early finishes.

Stitching wise, I didn't do well at all. I started 2009 in a bit of a stitching slump which has continue for most of 2009. although I've been stitching more in the past 6 months. I managed 16 finishes of mostly small things. This has left me with 37 stitching WIPs, 30 of which were started before 2009.

Stitching finishes 2009

My plans for 2010 are fairly simple. I want to enjoy my knitting and stitching. Ideally I want to get the number of WIPs down a bit. 2010 is going to be a year of stash reduction for me. I have a lot of yarn and stitching materials and I would like to reduce the size of the stash. However I'm pretty realistic about my will power so the plan is to make sure that I use more yarn and stitching supplies than I buy.
